Acer Aspire 3 A317-53-55XA Body, Connectors, and Display
With its slim light silver design, this versatile laptop has a discreet and elegant look.
The connectivity built into this laptop is correct, and consists of a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac units, Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connection and communication without wires, Ethernet, audio ports or even 3 USB ports all compatible With both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensures transfers that are up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
However, it is too bad to note that there is no USB-C, a more modern and effective Wi-Fi ax module, or even a keyboard backlighting solution.
Some will also regret that the screen adopts a lower definition of 1600 x 900 than Full HD, which is just as classic as its 16:9 format which makes it good for video playback. Good point, the screen is anti-reflective which makes it less stressful to the eyes on prolonged use than the glossy panel and more readable in a bright environment (eg outside).
The performance and autonomy of the Acer Aspire 3 A317-53-55XA
The Acer Aspire 3 A317-53-55XA is a 17-inch laptop intended for everyday general purpose use.
In fact, it relies on a good amount of 16GB of RAM above average and a low-powered Intel Tiger Lake quad-core i5-1135G7 processor.
As a result, this laptop offers good overall performance that is able to satisfy a number of users.
Notably, it allows you to view photos and videos but also to play modest titles thanks to the Iris Xe graphics part (which we tested) built into the Core i5.
However, it is better to choose a computer based on a non-low-power processor and / or a suitable dedicated graphics card if you often plan to perform work that consumes processor and / or graphics resources.
In terms of storage, there is a 512GB SSD that meets the standard among hard drives. However, if you need more space, you can use external storage. Preferring a USB 3.0 device is an interesting option to take advantage of fast transfers.
In any case, SSD offers many advantages over a hard disk: more power, silent operation, lower power consumption, and faster speed.

As a result, thanks to the SSD, the start / stop, processing and running of the program are much faster for example, and we get to online game cards faster.
For the autonomy of this computer, which is not easily transported due to its large size, even if we appreciate its versatility, bet about 5 hours of battery operation in light use. It should also be noted that 17 inches is especially convenient for mainly stable use (eg at home).
